In large parts in Europe, multi-ethnic communities suffer the corrosive effects of sectarian and nationalist politics. Our mission is to help communities become more resilient by creating local networks of social start-ups. We believe that the shared pursuit of entrepreneurial ambitions can build overarching trust and prosperity.
“I am truly glad and grateful I was part of it.” Adrijana Paceska, participant Struga program
We use the universal language of food to connect people and celebrate what they have in common.
Talent across the divide works together on social start-up ideas that tackle community challenges.
People help each other realize their entrepreneurial ambitions by pooling their skills and resources.
In these days of industrialised food, we tend to forget how food has shaped our identity. Food not only expresses who we are, it is also a powerful social lubricant.
The essential challenge is to transform the isolation and self-interest within our communities into connectedness and caring for the whole
